Hancock's Common Bermuda Mix - Spring & Summer (March - October 15th)
75% - Un-Hulled Common Bermuda Grass Seed
25% Browntop Millet
This mix is shipped March through October 15th, unless otherwise requested.
Our Spring & Summer Common Bermuda grass seed mixture contains 75% Un-Hulled Bermuda grass seed and 25% Browntop Millet . The Browntop Millet is added to assist in fast ground coverage, retaining soil moisture and preventing soil and seed erosion. The Browntop Millet will also quickly establish an effective germination environment for the permanent Bermuda grass. The Browntop Millet will germinate in 2 to 3 days with adequate soil moisture and grow for approximately 65 days. During the Browntop millet’s 65 day growing cycle the permanent Bermuda grass will establish beneath the protective Browntop Millet’s coverage. It is very important to keep the newly seeded areas watered and mowed to prevent the Browntop Millet from overcrowding or shading out the young Bermuda grass seedlings.

Hancock's Common Bermuda Mix - Fall & Winter (October 15th - February)
75% - Un-Hulled Common Bermuda Grass Seed
25% - Gulf Annual Ryegrass
This mix is shipped October 15th through February, unless otherwise requested.
Our Fall & Winter Common Bermuda grass seed mixture contains 75% Un-Hulled Bermuda grass seed and 25% Annual Rye Grass . The Annual Rye grass is added to assist in fast ground coverage, retaining soil moisture and preventing soil and seed erosion. The Annual Rye will also provide an effective spring germination environment for the permanent Bermuda grass. As nighttime spring temperatures increase to 65 to 70 degrees the Annual Rye grass will begin to die out. As the Annual Rye grass begins to die out the Bermuda grass will begin to emerge through the established Annual Rye grasses root structure. Bermuda grass seed requires 2-3 weeks of constant 65 to 70 degree nighttime temperatures combined with soil moisture to stimulate germination. It is very important to water and mow the newly seeded areas in the spring. This prevents the Annual Rye grass from overcrowding and shading out the young Bermuda grass seedlings as they emerge. To insure a successful seeding and establishment experience please refer closely to the planting guide provided with your order.
